1 A Minute

It’s here!!!  October is here!  And around our house this is cause for celebration because it’s

BreAst CANCER AWARENESS MONTH! 

I was so touched this morning when my hubby came out of the bedroom after getting ready for work and he was wearing his “I WEAR PINK FOR MY WIFE” shirt.  My boys were sporting their pink bracelets, and Katie, well, she’s always in pink;-)  My ever supportive pink princess!  Gosh I have the best family EVER!!

I wanted to take a moment to share with you a startling statistic…that every 69 seconds a woman dies of breast cancer somewhere in the world…every minute…  Wow.  Sobering, right? 

So what will you do to stop the clock?

Here’s an opportunity for ya.  On October 6, 2010, you can visit participating theaters and watch the documentary “1 A Minute.”  Check this out:
